My company, Paralinx, is proud to debut and demonstrate the Tomahawk - a brand new Realtime HD Downlink ideal for use in FPV or remote camera operation.



Paralinx has been in development for about five years, and entered the wireless HD transmitter market on June 1st 2012 at Cinegear in Los Angeles.

We are now very excited to introduce the TOMAHAWK which is specifically engineered to be a good choice for use on small Fixed Wing and Multi-Rotor Aerial Vehicles. Joining us is one of the world's premiere Aerial Imaging Teams - DRONE DUDES!

The company was founded by myself and Greg Smokler - two members of the Cinematographer's Guild, and we started Paralinx because there was no Wireless HD option on the market that met our standards for quality and affordability. As camera people we are constantly being asked to provide a wireless HD monitor feed for clients, directors, our assistants, and other camera operators, and we wanted to make something easy to use and affordable enough to keep in your kit and make your money back quickly.

Through our adventures in imaging we quickly made friends with a variety of people using remote and autonomous vehicles for capturing exciting new imagery. I've been fascinated by robotics since I was just a kid, and to see where things are headed with UAVs at a DIY level has stoked my interest and desire to learn even more.

Naturally this led me to the DIY Drones site in my quest for knowledge and every day I'm blown away by the things I learn here.

I hope to meet a lot of you and share our excitement for the possibilities of Remote Imaging in conjunction with our premiere of the Tomahawk Wireless HD Transmitter.

Thanks everyone! and please don't forget to RSVP to the free event at

  • Hoping for consumer grade products AND pricing, however "custom quotes" frightens me!  Hope your demo is fantastically successful and look forward to the day when there is technology trickle down that brings it within reach of current hobby vtx/vrx pricing.

  • Dan, congrats, this is a big step forward.

    I'm already impressed with the basic Arrow setup (I think my film guy just bought one). Just finished a demo using it for 2 weeks, no issues in a high 2.4Ghz/5.8Ghz environment. Latency was great and ran the Tx on a Turnigy 3000mah USB backup pack for over 3+ hrs with a Hero3 & actioncam. Was impressive...

    I'm in Burbank will try to attend this weekend.

  • any chance of stream so i can watch from aus?

  • Are you using DJI Naza Wookong or APM?  This looks like a Cinestar octocopter from Wow hobbies.

  • @jack Crossfire - couldn't have been us - we are age agnostic!

  • Developer

    I saw the Tomahawk in action over the weekend. The quality was perfect and no latency at all. it's unreal. 

  • Dan, thanks for your hard work for this industry and hobby! It pleases me to know part of your goal was to make HD transmissions for UAVs. I can't wait for the demo!

  • Once interviewed at 1 of those wireless video vendors.  The guy openly said he didn't hire anyone over 30.

  • Hi Project Nadar, and Mr. Taylor, we will be publishing pricing and specs immediately following the demo. Custom quotes will also be available via

  • Seeing the RED in the foreground and all the other top end equipment, I am curious about the specs too.  Do you have a link to the TOMAHAWK, that lists the specs and price?
